If I Could Only Tell Him As I Know Him


If I could only tell him as I know him,
My Redeemer who has brightened all my way;
If I could tell how precious is his presence,
I am sure that you would make him yours today.

Refrain:
Could I tell it, could I tell it,
How the sunshine of his presence lights my way,
I would tell it, I would tell it,
And I’m sure that you would make him yours today.

If I could only tell you how he loves you,
And if we could thro’ the lonely garden go;
If I could tell his dying pain and pardon,
You would worship at his wounded feet I know. [Refrain]

If I could tell how sweet will be his welcome,
In that home whose wondrous beauty ne’er was told;
And tell you how he waits and longs to save you,
You would seek him, and abide within his fold. [Refrain]

But I can never tell him as I know him;
Human tongue can never tell of love divine;
I only can entreat you to accept him;
Come and know the joy and peace forever mine. [Refrain]
